When Manka was sold in 1981 she had a fair bit of work done on her. The petrol engine was changed for a diesal one. The petrol one was very quiet but was expensive to run.
The 2 sliding windows in the bow were changed for one larger one.
She would of had some new planking and a full repaint.
Her name was also changed to Malanka.

Here she is on her home moorings at South Walsham in 2001.

Malanka was sold again in the early 2000's and its new home was a bottom of the garden mooring in Neatishead. I've got some photos somewhere but can't find them at the moment.
She was then moved in 2006 to Broadsedge at Stalham on the river moorings. It was good to see her when starting and finishing a holiday from Richardsons.

For the next few years Malanka was moved inside of Broadsedge were she remains today. Ownership was changed towards the end of 2010 to Martin and Fiona. This was great for me hearing about and seeing pictures of her on this forum.
Here she is at easter 2011 at Moonfleet getting some work done for the new season. One of the jobs was having a shower fitted.  The first time in all those years that she had one. I dont know how we managed when Grandad owned her, I couldn't manage without one today. Smile

Fantastic, great storyline. Loved it big time  Cheers

And long may the history tales of Malanka continue.

She has been a very lucky boat imho, lots of caring owners right from the start. Her latest custodians look very much like continuing in the same vein too.

We had a wonderful afternoon, me telling about past times and having a good look around Malanka.
I think she looks as good now as shes ever looked in the past.
Here she is leaving Hotel Wroxham the next morning.
